Vinyl siding can fade after ten to fifteen years of use. Painting your vinyl siding is a smart way to extend the life of your siding, but you need to be aware of a few simple guidelines before you begin.

Starting Your Vinyl Siding Repainting Project

First, if you're hoping to take advantage of repairs or replacements under your siding's manufacturer's warranty, make sure that painting your vinyl siding won't void the warranty guarantee.

Follow these simple steps to update the look of your siding:

  • Wash: Vinyl siding wash designed to clean a home up to 1,500 square feet can be purchased for around $10 at your local hardware store. Home siding experts recommend you use a regular garden hose instead of a pressure washer so you don't get water in the cracks of the vinyl.
  • Wait: Allow your home to dry for at least four days after you wash. A clean, dry surface is important to keep mildew and mold from growing between your coats of paint.
  • Paint: Use latex paint, starting at a bottom or top corner of the wall and applying the paint horizontally. Be sure to use lighter paint colors, because dark colors tend to absorb heat and cause your freshly painted siding to buckle.

On the day you're set to paint, try to avoid painting in direct sunlight. The goal is to have your new coat of paint dry slowly and evenly, ensuring a professional looking finish.
